Watched that AMD Computex Keynote, and it was glorious:
Navi not being GCN-based anymore, but RDNA, consumes 50% less and is 25% more performant per clock than Vega (1st gen, not Vega VII), aiming for about RTX 2060Ti-2070 performance. Oh, and they're called RX 5xxx, like RX 5700 for the announced Model.
But the big announcement was with next-gen Ryzen. They just showed:
Ryzen 5 3600 and 3600X (6C12T)
Ryzen 7 3700X and 3800X (8C16T)
Ryzen 9 3900X (12C24T)
15% improvement in IPC, higher clock speeds (Ryzen 9 gets 3.9Ghz base, 4.6Ghz Turbo, plus maybe some XFR on top of that), apparently beating Intel CPU both in multicore and singlecore performance (though that's in low single digits, so basically a draw in singlecore). Oh, and the Ryzen p 3900X destroyed the Intel i9 9920X (also 12 cores) in Blender(Ryzen was done long before the i9, as in 20-30% more performance) despite costing less then half as much.
Prices range from $199 (R5 3600) to $499 (R9 3900X), so more expensive than the leaks, but considering how low they were, that was pretty sure from the get-go.
Here's a link to a live reaction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pr4j6OMYya4
But I suggest you take the tl;dr version as the other one is 2 hours long: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qqBijKHuHM
How do you think this will play out in the future? Will Intel find a counter anytime soon? Will Navi catch up to Nvidia in performance per watt?
Can't wait for the first benchmarks...
Edit: Also, Linus' reaction is... Epyc: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7hofCnniJE
